"Marnie" opera to be screened at TCA

The Met: Live in HD features composer Nico Muhly's take on Winston Graham's novel also adapted by Alfred Hitchcock

Posted

The opera “Marnie” will be broadcast live Saturday (Nov. 10), 11 a.m., at the Taos Community Auditorium, 145 Paseo del Pueblo Norte. The screening is a presentation of The Met: Live in HD. Composer Nico Muhly unveils his second new opera for the Met with this gripping reimagining of Winston Graham’s novel.

Set in the 1950s, the story is about a beautiful, mysterious young woman who assumes multiple identities. Director Michael Mayer and his creative team have devised a fast-moving, cinematic world for this exhilarating story of denial and deceit. Mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard sings the enigmatic Marnie, and baritone Christopher Maltman is the man who pursues her — with disastrous results. Robert Spano conducts.

Runtime is two hours, 52 minutes, including one intermission.

Tickets are $25, $20 for TCA members. Admission for youth 17 and under is free thanks to the Taos Opera Guild. Tickets may be purchased in advance by calling (575) 758-2052 or are available at the box office day of the program.
